Are we all becoming the google generation? - Eloise's thoughts and fancies - 0 views

  •  
    Is there such a thing as the Google Generation?

    Yes, actually, but some of the characteristics of that group are spreading throughout all age groups. Libraries and governments need to work out how to react and adapt to this and some of the weaknesses of the Google Generation, and quickly.

Pioneering research shows 'Google Generation' is a myth - 0 views

    • All age groups revealed to share so-called ‘Google Generation' traits
    • New study argues that libraries will have to adapt to the digital mindset
    • Young people seemingly lacking in information skills; strong message to the government and society at large
  • “Libraries in general are not keeping up with the demands of students and researchers for services that are integrated and consistent with their wider internet experience”,
  • research into the information behaviour of young people and training programmes on information literacy skills in schools are desperately needed if the UK is to remain as a leading knowledge economy with a strongly-skilled next generation of researchers.

      This is needed for all countries, just few countries realize it!

      Multiliteracies approach seems to be the focus now in the education landscape. Paper sabout learning/teaching with technology are emmerging in this area and seem to address this.
  • ...5 more annotations...
  • “Libraries have to accept that the future is now.
  • Turning the Pages 2.0 and the mass digitisation project to digitise 25 million of pages of 19th-century English literature are only two examples of the pioneering work we are doing.
  • the changing needs of our students and researchers and how libraries can meet their needs.
  • We hope it will also serve to remind us all that students and researchers will continue to need the appropriate skills and training to help navigate an increasingly diverse and complex information landscape.”
  • CIBER developed a methodology which has created a unique ‘virtual longitudinal study' based on the available literature and new primary data about the ways in which the British Library and JISC websites are used. This is the first time for the information seeking behaviour of the virtual scholar to have been profiled by age.

      They have created a new technique called a "virtual longitudinal study" that sounds fascinating.
    • Jonathan Tepper
       
      not sure if that is an established methodology... interesting.
  •  
    This study breaks a lot of the stereotypes people may have about use of the Internet. It also presents important information for libraries and schools.
  •  
    Wow -- this longitudinal study shows that all generations show "google generation" traits with over 65 year olds spending 4 more hours a week online than some of the younger ages.

    It argues that libraries must adapt to the digital mindset AND that young people are lacking in information skills!

    This is an important study for all educators, business leaders, AND students on the Horizon project. Another reason to remind ourselves that we base practice on RESEARCH not STEREOTYPES!

» The fallacy of community - Marketing Conversation - New Marketing and Socia... - 0 views

  •  
    Jonathan Trenn writes an article on the "fallacy of community" that many of the vendors at NECC should read. Edubloggers / educators/ educational groups of people emerge because we want to. We create a community when we need to and have the passionate desire for a common purpose. However, the word community and social network was so overused at NECC this year as to become a curse word.

    Used by people told it was important but who may not understand it themselves. This is a great article and strikes a cord with me.
